Issue details

Provision of Vehicle Activated Signs in Temple Cloud

This is part of a package of measures developed in the Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) designed to improve air quality in Temple Cloud which is currently above permitted national guidelines. The VASs are being placed to alert drivers of larger vehicles about another large vehicle approaching from the opposite direction and therefore hopefully to smooth the flow of traffic through the village, reducing the start stop action and hence reducing heavy acceleration within the problem area, especially from heavy goods vehicles. Improving air quality is a statutory requirement on the Council to bring NOx levels down below specified maximums. There is a particular problem in parts of Temple Cloud with NO2 levels.
